Almost a quarter say they hurt themselves or others as a result of their drinking and 42% want to drink less
The Guardian, Monday 13 June, 2016
This is a fascinating article as it outlines how heavy drinkers are prone to acknowledge the need for help in dealing with their own alcohol consumption but also their unwillingness to get it.
And that, in my view, is because they don’t want to alter their drinking – even though they admit they need to. You have to want to stop or slow down if you’re going to actually do it. It’s not enough just to recognise the need.
